THE RANCH: We are located at the base of the Sierra Nevada mountains near Reno, NV. Our introduction to Nigerian Dwarf Goats bloomed into a passion had by the entire family. We chose Nigerian Dwarfs because they produce delicious milk and stay small (around 21" tall) which makes it easy to keep them on small acreage. They are easily handled by children and they come in just about any color or combination of colors you can imagine! Nigerian Dwarfs have wonderful personalities and while they are the smallest dairy goat breed, they hold their own in milk production.
OUR GOATS: We are members of ADGA (American Dairy Goat Association) and AGS (American Goat Society) and all of our herd members are registerable through NDGA (Nigerian Dwarf Goat Association) as well. For more about us at Sierra Aspen Ranch please click on the About Us page. We take our goats to as many shows as possible each year and participate in ADGA Linear Appraisal.
ABOUT DISEASE: We test annually for CAE, CL and Johnes prior to breeding each year. Our whole herd tested NEGATIVE 10/11/13! Visitors are welcome any time by appointment. We encourage potential goat owners to visit prior to purchase if possible. We ask that you respect our concerns regarding biosecurity when visiting. We vaccinate annually for CD/T. Since we are in a mineral deficient zone, we supplement according to their needs.
OUR GOAL: Our goal is to raise and breed healthy show quality kids who excel in dairy character and milk production. Each year we will have several wethers and on occasion may have non-show quality does available to pet homes. Please see the Kidding Schedule for pricing and more information. We have invested in top quality Nigerian Dwarfs from herds all over the country and provide the best feed and care possible.
NEWS: 10/20/14 Breeding season is under way. Several does have been bred and the kidding schedule is updated with current due dates. Reservations are still available for most breedings!
